  • Firing Schedule

    Fire as a part of a 2 fire schedule. Fire in a kiln. Fire in activated coconut carbon. Please remember this firing schedule is based on a cold kiln and thickness of the piece is also something you need to work out. If a piece is any thicker than about 6mm thick you may need extra time due to the thickness of the piece.

    Rehydrating Aussie Metal Clay Make sure you use DISTILLED WATER as it hydrates the clay better than ordinary water. Keep any moist clay in a sealed container so it doesn’t dry out.
